Looking for feedback on the best way to show a quarter or half inch of shirt cuff with this suit jacket. Do I need longer shirt sleeves or shorter jacket sleeves? Or both? Hoping @Despos or @a-tailor can offer some advice.   For the record, the sleeves of both the jacket and the shirt are 32".

 Got my answer and unfortunately the back rise is going to be too low for me. Major bummer. Good luck everyone!
Can anyone provide back rise measurements including waistband? I have junk in the trunk and could go up or down two sizes depending on where they sit.

What's a good price for a WWII pea coat that has been in storage for 60+ years and is essentially perfect? I know part of it is "whatever you are willing to pay," but I'm curious what you guys think the appropriate market value is in 2014.
I posted this in the quick questions thread, but someone suggested I post it here instead.   Tailoring question:   J.Crew's dock pea coat fits me really well, but I don't like how it flares out so much around the hips (not me in the photo). Is that something a tailor would be able to slim down, or would it be tricky because of the vent in back?   Here are some actual coat measurements as provided from J.Crew:   Chest Circumference 1" Below Armhole: 41.5" Waist...
 The coat does have some waist suppression, but it also flares out significantly. Check out these measurements from J.Crew for size small: Chest Circumference 1" Below Armhole: 41.5"Waist Circumference: 39.75"Sweep Circumference Measured Straight: 43.75" So yeah, it's going to look pretty hippy on just about anyone. Do you think it'd be possible to reduce the flare by 2" or more without screwing up the way the pockets are positioned?

Did a newsletter go out this week? I never got anything.
